New choice for the Book Club – ‘We are all Completely Beside Ourselves’ by Karen Joy Fowler
Here’s the latest choice for the Book Club: ‘We are all Completely Beside Ourselves’ by Karen Joy Fowler. I don’t know anything about this other than the blurb, and I don’t know anyone that has read it so I have absolutely no preconceptions, but it certainly did its job and successfully drew me in. I can’t wait to find out what happens on page 77…!
Stay tuned to find out what we think.

New for the Book Club – And the Mountains Echoed – by Khaled Hosseini
The latest choice for the Chamonix Book Club is one I’m very excited about. ‘And the Mountains Echoed’ by Khaled Hosseini is a book that has been on my ‘to read’ list for some time, as I would safely put ‘The Kite Runner’ and ‘A Thousand Splendid Suns’ in amongst my favourite books of all time. I think Khaled Hosseini is a wonderful writer, whose previous novels have been both heart wrenching and beautiful.
I’m eagerly awaiting the arrival of my copy and can’t wait to get started!

New for the book club – an intriguing choice
Our latest choice for the book club is the first adult novel from JK Rowling, who needs no introduction. This book was a recommendation and we are all highly intrigued to see how the Harry Potter author tackles her first story aimed at older readers. It is set in a fictional village based in rural England and seems a million miles from the magical setting of Hogwarts. The reviews are outstanding so looking forward to a good summer read. Watch this space to see what we think!
New book for the Chamonix Book Club!
The new book has been chosen; this time a non-fiction. A far cry from The Book Thief, the new choice is ‘It’s not about the bike’, by Lance Armstrong. This was an interesting choice by one of the group who was a huge fan of the 7 time Tour de France winner, and is interested to see how people’s opinions may have changed since he was exposed as a drugs cheat. Does his cheating completely cancel out any success he ever had? Or is what he achieved still impressive despite now knowing what he did?
We shall find out!
